[Q] Screen is broken but phone works, looking for suggestions on accessing interface?
Looking for a creative solution here. It seems I have a perfectly functioning phone that won't display anything but a short flash of light around the edges of the screen. Capacitive touch works, can feel the haptic feedback. Phone rings, can be answered if you swipe in the right place. Just no display.
I need to send it to Samsung for warranty repair, however I'd like to grab a NAND backup first because they are sure to wipe it. To do that, I need a display! I'm rooted with custom recovery, of course. Can I gain screen control with an app similar to ODIN? If I purchase an MHL to HDMI adapter, will it automatically start showing my screen output on a TV? Is there something else I'm not thinking of?
